As A Man With Good Intentions ......

I decided to cook the evening meal for my S.O. and youngest son last night . I checked the freezer for the appropriate food stuffs . Deciding that a M&S chicken thing with stuffing acompanyied with Mickey Mouse  potato  shapes and brussel sprouts would be suffice . I lit the oven placing the affore mentioned chicken in the center gas mark five for fifty five minuets. Sprouts placed on a peep and MM,s on a baking tray . Feeling chuffed I continued on the theme, feeding the cats  filling  the bird feeders hanging on the trees in the garden . The feeling of a hard task accomplished was soon to disappear when the brood arrived home , the look of surprise on the face of S.O. and the accompanying OH OH from junior did nothing to bolster my confidence . Having them seated I  asked what to drink while I waited for the last five minuets to abate before I set before them my feast !!! 

The best laid plans of mice and men gang aft a-gley  .......

 

I had lit the top oven and placed the food in the bottom oven...

So down to the chippy for fish suppers best twenty quid I have ever spent  !!!

Thats the attitude young man ....

I will do my best. I am putting all of my cards on the air force right now.

Rest is just as important as exsersise your body will be fine , just keep your mind on the positive and dont be to hard on yourself

Yeah i plan to keep it up, and i worked out 4 days of the week, but i don't feel like i am healthy yet. Something is still wrong with my body.

Keep it up thats not a bad average ........ my youngest son joined the army cadets he is off on a weekend camp to a army barrecks in Dundee for some night hikes and obsticile course,s ...

LOL Good story. I have a few of those myself.

I dunno it all depends really. Every time my brother passes through on his way to iraq they stop him in your country for a day or so. If i get sent over when i join up i will probably take the same route. If not i plan to vacation on my military leave days. I need to lose 50 more pounds, or get my body fat percent down to 18-19%. <br />
<br />
So far ive lost about 10 pounds in 3 weeks. So i got a long way to go.

A quid young man is paper currency a pound note akin to a Dollar bill .... when you coming ?

No idea what that means either, but im sure when i visit that country i will learn.

Paper equivilent of twenty coins of the realm ......

Never heard of a quid before.

Thank you Pedro ....

Hmmm thank you Frito .....
